A Transition Year Module Based on the Principles of TEMI

(Laurie Ryan & Peter E. Childs, Proceedings Dortmund Symposium 26-28 May 2016)
This research project focuses on developing teaching and learning resources for Transition Year Science in accordance with the Teaching Enquiry with Mysteries Incorporated (TEMI) guidelines. This research project focused on Transition Year (TY) science. A module was created which contained 8 different units developed based on Bybee’s 5E model of Inquiry which included: Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate.

Teachers profiles

  • With TEMI, students are active participants in the discovery process and their ideas play an important part in the construction of scientific knowledge in the lesson.

    Margaret Duggan Keady (Ireland)

  • So far, my experiences with TEMI led to my consideration that TEM is a modern, student-oriented pedagogy that allows learners to follow and understand scientific inquiry and to have fun in finding scientific explanations for challenging scientific phenomena.

    Bettina Most (Germany)

  • TEMI offers an inquiry-based method of gaining scientific knowledge that uses “mysteries”, e.g. the “magic sand” or the famous cola-mentos fountain, as a starting point to make science classes the way they ought to be – fascinating.

Teaching the TEMI way

In this booklet, you will be introduced to an exciting new way to teach science in your classroom. TEMI incorporates four key innovations: the use of mysteries, the 5E cycle, presentation skills and gradual release of responsibility from the teacher to the learner.
